Please help diagnose my little Eden! And on a side note with the sorority, I checked aqadvisor and the stocking is ok and she is not getting bullied or harassed by the other females, though she is smaller. The tank is very heavily planted and I have been watching the girls very carefully. There are no shreds/tears/bites in her fins but they are clamped! Thank you! What can I do to nurse her back to health?!
